We were heading out to eat when valet parking lost the keys to the car and then lost the whole car! We even had to drive around with an employee looking for it...after 3 hours of stressing and being very hungry I pretty much demanded they feed us. 2 free buffets for 6 hours of no car and lots of...

Bottom line, I recommend people go elsewhere, the service levels have dropped under new ownership. The Ascuaga family sold out and the new owners are not such good managers. The Managing Partner of the new owners, Carlton, told me the hotel manager would address my concerns two weeks ago and I have no response. This would not have happened when... More

The Nugget has been a favorite of ours for years. The rates over Thanksgiving were below $40 and were well worth it. The ventilation of the casino is improving for a much less Nevada casino smoke smell. The rooms are clean and well maintained but a bit dated. The TV was a 19" tube type so that is kind of... More

Thank you for being a loyal customer! We have been working hard on renovations and expect to start working on the West Tower sometime between now and 2017. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” but we are making great progress. We have several large conventions coming in the next two years so we have to plan construction around their visits... More

I stayed here for a week and the cable might have worked about 20% of the time. The hotel is old and dated, it definitely needs a face lift. The rooms are nice and spacious but don't eat at the hotel. I haven't had a good meal here yet, but I have been told that the steakhouse is excellent. This... More

This place is far from a hotel or a place to stay even for just one night, service is so poor it took two hours to get me in my room when the door lock would not work. I blame management not employees. IT IS CALLED A PENNY SAVED A DOLLAR FOOLISH. I stayed here awhile back under the old... More

This hotel needs some major upgrades. The rooms are dirty, cigarette burns in the carpet, leftover items on the floor - just gross. If they can't update, they can at least clean. Very disappointed. Meeting room ceilings are leaking from rain. What the heck is going on here?

Stayed in the East tower and got to listen to the trains in the rail yard all night. UGH! Not what I call a ton of fun. Air quality wasn't the best in the rooms either. AC was set on 60 and the room would never get cooled off. Even asked maintenance to work on it and it still never... More

Stayed here Thanksgiving. Nice room in the West Tower. One of the older towers but clean. Could have used an upgrade on the mattress. A bit uncomfortable and had those stupid little pillows. Our room was near the rail yard but on the 12th floor so noise was not a problem. And we kept the window open! Huge picture window... More

Not bad but the Hotel is a bit worn out. The fitness room is one of the most out dated I've seen. Other than that everything is very average. As Long as you go into it knowing its a older casino you will be ok.

In town for a few days to attend a Funeral and was advised to stay here because many other relatives were there, because of the great prices when reservations made online. We were able to make reservations from a mobile device same day and added an extra day to let a storm pass by for driving back to Southern California.... More
